Hi,
I have a problem with my i5. I can't force it to go above 2.7 ghz. It should go up to 3.1 on all cores, but even if I stress it with OCCT for an hour there is still just 2.7 with 56 celcius. When I play games CPU occupancy is about 85% and still no boost. I checked in the BIOS and the turbo boost is enabled. I have Win 7 64bit, ASRock H110M DGS mainboard and Geforce 970 GTX. Any clue guys?

Can you post a link to your Userbench results please

How have you configured power plan in Windows?

How long have you had this problem for? Is this a new system to you or was it never turboing and decided to look into it?

I was using OCCT 4.5 and CPU-Z 1.68. Now I have installed OCCT 5.5.1 and CPU-Z 1.91 and suddenly both programs show 3.1 GHz on all cores when CPU is stressed. It seems that the very problem was me... I'm very sorry guys for taking your time. Nontheless thanks for trying to help me ;)
